Justin Bieber has been banned from performing in China by local authorities due to “bad behaviour”.
Bieber is heading to Asia with his Purpose World Tour this fall, however his tour will lack a stop in China. Upon fans’ questioning, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture issued a statement explaining the authority’s reasons for banning Justin Bieber from performing in Beijing.
“Justin Bieber is a talented singer but is also a controversial young foreign idol. We understand that there are records of his bad behaviour, whether it is in his private life abroad or on stage…His inappropriate manner has caused public discontent. In order to regulate the market order of show business in China and purify the market environment, it was decided that performers of (who display) inappropriate behaviour will not be welcomed.”
A source at the Shangai’s local cultural suggested that the city will follow suit and will not allow Bieber to perform.
